Sleep & Anxiety for Parents/Carers of C&YP with SEN – Zoom

A workshop for Wokingham parents/carers who have children and young people with additional needs who struggle with their sleep due to anxiety.

Topics covered:

  • Why do we need sleep?
  • What happens when you don’t get enough sleep?
  • Common sleep problems
  • What is anxiety?
  • Some types of anxiety
  • How to manage your child’s anxiety
  • Mindfulness exercise
  • Breathing exercise
  • Reading suggestions and resources
  • Opportunity to ask questions

Date: Monday 27th September

Time: 7-9pm

Cost: Free (£5 refundable booking deposit) for families with a child who lives, or attends a school, within the Wokingham Borough Council area. We have a small number of tickets available for non-Wokingham residents.


We are very grateful to Wokingham Healthwatch for funding this workshop. It will be lead by specialist sleep practitioner Helen Tracey and co-hosted by Jennie Kettell. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.
